Fodor's Review

With more than 300 specimens, this impressive collection includes snakes, lizards, frogs, turtles, and other reptilian creatures, housed in visitor-friendly terrariums and large enclosures. Stars of the exhibit are a Komodo dragon, Gila monsters, and a 150-pound African spur-thighed tortoise that likes to be petted. Kids love the maternity ward showcasing newborn snakes. More mature snakes live under a retractable roof that lets in sun and rain. Although snakes are generally more active in sunlight, this is still a great rainy-day activity. Guided night tours can also be arranged to watch nocturnal animals. If you're not squeamish, feeding day is Friday.

terrible animal abuse

As I drove into the park, I saw the person at the front desk (tall white guy with dreadlocks) slap and kick a dog. That kind of animal abuse is intolerable, I decided not to support such an establishment that tolerates such disgusting behavior!
